RTR Changes in Response to the Coronavirus
 
Taking effect immediately on Wednesday, March 18, until further notice:
 
We are continuing to find ways to work to serve you and our members during this challenging time. Given the recent declaration of Governor Cuomo that no more than 10 people can congregate, and his appeal that small businesses close, The Reform Temple of Rockland will close to the public at this time effective immediately
  • Phone calls left for the temple will be returned within two business days, with the exception being emergency calls;
  • Billing processing will continue on its regular schedule;
  • Yahrzeit notifications and tribute recognition and requests will also continue;
  • Weekly emails from the temple will continue;
  • We will offer Friday night virtual services with kaddish; 
  • The bulletin will be suspended for the time being – there will be no April Connections;
  • There will be no more rentals within our building during this time;
  • Outdoor construction will continue and will be properly monitored to ensure the safety of the building;
  • Extensive cleaning of the building will continue; 
  • Virtual Religious School, Academy, and Hebrew School will continue beginning hopefully March 22;
  • B’nei Mitzvah Lessons will continue remotely; 
  • Rabbi Sharff, Cantor Neff, and Brad Zicholtz, the Director of Congregational Learning, will be working on extended offerings including some adult education learning experiences. These are in process and will be announced as they are set up.
  • We are actively working on virtual offerings for Passover should the limitations continue through then. 
Thank you for your continued support and patience during this very challenging time. Also note that all of the staff have children at home with all schools being closed. We will continue to serve you to the best of our ability, but please be patient with us. 
 
And finally, if you are in need of support or assistance during this time, your RTR Family is here for you.

We Shine Brighter Together at RTR…

Combining over 110 years of Reform Judaism in Rockland County, Temple Beth El (Spring Valley) and Temple Beth Torah (Nyack) merged to create an even brighter entity, The Reform Temple of Rockland (RTR). Everyone comes together here – interfaith couples, LGBTQ families, the young and the not-so-young – to create our warm Jewish community. Our Worship is enriched with a love of music, filled with our gifted Cantor’s voice, our choir, and our Chai Life Rock Shabbat band. Toe tapping and hand clapping are encouraged! See for yourself why so many find our family-friendly Friday night services or educational programming so inspiring, or why our B’nei Mitzvah are just beginning their journeys, not ending them. Each of us is a Jewish light but together, we all shine brighter. Don’t wait for a holiday to drop by. Our caring clergy and congregation look forward to meeting you!
